    I love the ladybug wall hanging and I know just the person I am going to make it for. This magazine is great for those of us that do machine embroidery and want to incorporate it with our quilting. Thanks so much for the great ideas.

  3. I like scrappy quilting and the Treasures from the Sea looks like a neat scrappy project! I’m excited about the Blook 100 Vol.3 and can hardly wait until May.
